THE BENEDICTUS WITH RESPONSEBlessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,For he has visited and worked redemption for his people,And has raised up a horn of salvation for usIn the house of his servant DavidAs he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets that have been from old,Salvation from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;To show mercy towards our fathers,And to remember his holy covenant;The oath which he swore to Abraham, our father,To grant to us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemiesShould serve him without fear,In holiness and righteousness before him all our days.Yea and you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High:For you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;To give knowledge of salvation to his peopleIn the forgiveness of their sins,Because of the tender mercy of our God,Whereby the dayspring from on high will visit us,To shine upon them that sit in darkness and the shadow of death;To guide our feet into the way of peace.
ResponseLord, open my lips.My mouth shall declare your praise.
